    Dear ILs

    You can use this Tree pin for any purpose. Either you can pin it with your costume, or use it in your drawing as an applique, or make few of these in different colours and make it a small bunch of flowers like. With Navrathri coming up we can have few of these trees in our Golu too.

    Idea is one uses are many .... Send me comments and try them its easy.


    POMPOM (make 3)
    Wrap A around 3 fingers – the more wraps, the fuller your Pompom will be. Cut yarn leading from skein. Slide a doubled strand of B under wraps and knot. Clip loops at opposite end. Fluff Pompom and trim ends evenly. FINISHING
    Cut 3 strands of A, each 10 in. (25.5 cm) long. Thread 1 strand into blunt needle. Leaving a long tail, thread needle (gently) through center of Pompoms. Remove needle, do not trim ends of strand. Repeat with other 2 strands. Pull ends of all 6 strands until they are even and Pompoms create a shamrock shape. Knot strands together. Divide strands into 3 groups of 2 strands each and braid to desired length for stem. Wrap end of braid with a strand of B, then trim ends evenly.
    Cut a 24 in. (61 cm) strand of B. Wrap B strand several times around top of braided stem, then thread strand into blunt needle and embroider a lazy daisy stitch onto each Pompom.
    Knot off strand on the back of Tree, then glue on pin back.

    Thats it enjoy!!!

    Thanks Ramvino,

    So nice to know that someone have really tried it out. one more use for the luggage tag is we can attach it in our bag zippers ... very useful esply for the kids. My children ask me to these in their favr. colours. Please post it when you are done with it. these little pom pom tree is also wonderful to see. esply when you make diff colours and group them into a bunch ... wow ... looks elegant.
    All the best ... will come out with more of these things sooner ... in the process of making ..
